Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

What's up at C-Haus this week?

December 4, 2012 at 8:34 pm

From C-Haus Manager Steve Olivieri:

Wednesday (Dec. 5)
Our week kicks off with the subtle, sincere melodies and strong vocals of Luna Gomez, performing our opening set. Vic and Gab are a song writing sister duo whose music lingers in a mix of indie pop/rock genre with sweet harmonies, hooky bass, and guitar lines. They picked up their instruments at age 11 and have since written songs about love, tiny little victories, disillusionment and heart break. Headlining are Chicago’s elegant indie rockers The Damn Choir. Their use of guitar, cello, bass, drums, and introspective lyrics create songs that range from meandering and melancholic to pulsing and vengeful.

Thursday (Dec. 6)
At 7:30 pm, it's a fully interactive trivia experience. Brush up on your Title IX knowledge and ready those nimble fingers. When the clickers go live, the game is on. Then at 9 p.m., join us for a Bachata Dace Workshop. Learn some new footwork to keep you dancing through the holidays, presented by Voces Latinas and the Office of Intercultural Affairs.

Friday (Dec. 7)
Come get into the holiday spirit with a compilation of performances from the campus’ talented student body, at 9 p.m. Enjoy holiday-themed refreshments and over-all merriment as the promise of the end of the semester appears on the horizon.

At 10 p.m., C-Haus welcomes the first stand-up comics of the semester. Appearing between the night’s bands are Midwest comedians Krains Butter and Marcos Lara. Taking the stage first will be The Welcome. The songwriting duo will perform their dynamic guy-girl vocals, a healthy dose of catchy hooks, and unrelenting melodies. We’re closing out our last Friday night with Chicago’s dance-rock band Blane Fonda. If they were instructors of exercise videos, Richard Simmons would have been out of a job. Expect to be drowned in cheeky, danceable tunes, complete with the occasional '80s-style melody and blaring trumpet. There won’t be a sweat-less body on stage.

Saturday (Dec. 8)
T.R.3 is performing his final show of the semester with a little help from Taz. Note: we’re starting at 8 p.m., so come out early.
